Rio Dulce

We arrived at Calypso Marina today just before noon. Now it is time to clean up, sort things out, start on the repair list and plan some travel.

Back on the Rio Dulce

Today was a combination of white out rain squalls between Cabo Tres Puntas and Livingston, and brilliant sun and heat motoring up the Rio Dulce "canyon". We stopped at Cayo Quemado for the night and will be on the dock at Calypso Marina in Rio Dulce for lunch tomorrow if all goes well. It is nice to be back on the Sweet River.

Cabo Tres Puntas

It is a lovely day and we are in no hurry so we anchored in the lee of Cabo Tres Puntas and will go over to Livingston tomorrow morning to check in, do some chores and then head up the Rio Dulce.

Underway

We had a very pleasant overnight sail from Roatan, Just closing the Guatemala coast at Cabo Tres Puntas to check in at Livingston before heading up to our hurricane season base on the Rio Dulce.

Roatan

A very pleasant downwind sail from Guanaja this morning. We anchored at Jonesville Bight in Roatan about midday. It looks to be a secure little spot for tomorrow's big wind. Rumor has it that there is live music at a local establishment later this afternoon. Maybe supper out tonight!

Sittee River

This morning we moved from Sapodilla Lagoon to the Sittee River. There wasn't any wind to speak of and the distance between the two headlands didn't make raising sail worthwhile so we did our motorboat impersonation.

Just as we reached the Sittee River entrance the edge of a squall that we had been watching rushed past to provide a bit of atmosphere. A boat came out from the Sittee River Marina to guide us into the river. The depth in the channel was fine (8' least depth an hour before high tide) but the channel was very narrow with a couple of sharp turns. It was confusing until we got right up to the stakes and then we could see what was going on. The rising wind, darkening sky, all the stakes and then the few marked stakes red to port, green to starboard added to the entertainment value. It was nice to have the guide boat with us.

We are tucked in to a small dredged out lagoon. The entrance channel was just wide enough for us (PR has a 26 foot beam). I felt like a little pin ball - one way until you touch one side then alter course until you touch the other. All slow speed and soft sides so no worries. With PR's single little diesel engine, midships outdrive leg and lots of windage tight quarters are always an adventure. Fortunately the captain is very skilled and always calm. Saw a crocodile in the river right after we tied up.

So we are here for a few days to visit friends and to develop a plan that will guide our travels for the next couple of months.
